No Information added


Mr. Irish has no affiliation with the country of Ireland, despite the name. Until 2018, Mr. Irish practiced business and real estate law...with his father as his boss. Despite the “joys” of this practice, Mr. Irish formed his own firm (iLaw) to transform his career into something where his hair would no longer be prematurely turning gray, while also networking to look for something new. Joking aside, Mr. Irish is actively looking for a new opportunity/challenge in a general counsel or in-house counsel type role. 

Mr. Irish graduated from the University of Arizona, B.A., 2007 and the Phoenix School of Law, J.D., 2011. Mr. Irish is also a graduate of the acclaimed Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, Arizona (2003). In 2018, Mr. Irish started iLaw, PLLC, which mirrors the former practice with Brier, Irish, Hubbard & Erhart, P.L.C., focusing on transactional business and real estate matters.

In Mr. Irish’s short legal career, he has already overcome some big obstacles. Phoenix School of Law, slowly losing its accreditation while in attendance (lost after graduation), changed the school name (Arizona Summit Law School) to hide the embarrassment (it backfired) and eventually shut down altogether (school no longer exists)…despite such, Mr. Irish is still practicing and looking to expand his career. Mr. Irish is an undrafted free agent, who still wants to compete, and perhaps has been overlooked because of the “D-II” school…based on this reference Mr. Irish is an adamant sports enthusiast and is looking to potentially someday expand his practice into the professional sports world, with the hopes of someday running a team/league/brand or somewhere within a front office.

Practicing since 2011, Mr. Irish has experience with contracts, corporate business, real estate, landlord/tenant (commercial and residential), and private lending matters
• Engages in the acquisition, development, financing, leasing, sale and management of office, industrial, retail and mixed-use properties, incl. negotiating/drafting construction contracts, leases (office, industrial, residential, ground and retail), purchase and sale agreements, CC&Rs, development agreements, acquisition, development, construction and permanent financing and all other types of lending transactions

• Counsels regarding formation of LLCs, companies, partnerships and other corporations, AZCC filings, drafting of operating agreements, partnership agreements, joint venture agreements, shareholders agreements and buy/sell agreements, employment agreements, non-competition and confidentiality agreements, negotiating and documenting all other forms of business transactions, including the amending and eventual dissolution of the same
